How Glassfish powers Eqyptian seafood restaurants

Me and my friend were walking in the streets of Luxor, desperately looking for something to eat in an early night. In spite of being the center of an Egyptian tourism, it is quite hard to find a clean restaurant in the city.

Suddenly, I glimpsed a seafood restaurant and - well - the picture on its board was at least quite familiar to me...

I spent some time staring at the board, trying to make sure I am not mistaken... Well, in the end, we didn't eat there but still the restaurant left a great impression... :)

This just makes me wonder - do local Mexican restaurants cook from NetBeans?

The first GTK theme that I really like (Ubuntu 9.04)

I have just discovered for myself a clean and quite finished GTK theme for my Ubuntu desktop. It is called the "New Wave". To use the theme, just invoke System>Preferences>Appearance and select the "New Wave" theme, as usual.

To make the theme usable, you need to switch to the "New Wave Dark Menus" variant - before you confirm the "Appearance Preferrences" dialog, click "Configure" and select the "New Wave Dark Menus" in the "Controls" tab.

This is what you get:

Here are some more previews (the theme suits quite well even to the NetBeans IDE):

Simple dark BlackBox wallpaper

I was looking for it everywhere: A simple, dark (ideally black) wallpaper with a blackbox theme for my laptop (super light Ubuntu + BlackBox). Unfortunatelly, with no luck... It likely doesn't exist on the internet or it is hiding from people who desperately want it.

Then I realized I work for the Netbeans (or - one could say - for "the IDE with a blue box logo"). And the idea was there - I started GIMP and created my own sexy wallpaper.

Netbeans can deal with many problems (even without knowing it) - this is how it solved my problem with missing BlackBox wallpaper...

Note: Any resemblance to any Sun's products (or their logos) is purely accidental... ;-) It is strictly prohibited NOT to use the wallpaper on your PC and author even strongly discourages you from NOT modifying it!
